I just tried to register to judge the Final Round NHC and on submitting it requires an identification of a judging location, but there is no field for that information. I would rant about this software but I've been beat down by it too much.

My British Brown Ale scored 40 points and made mini-BOS! I am stoked!

Nice.  40 is a great score.  I topped out at 35.5 this year.  My top two scores were the same top two beers as last year, but no luck on advancing.

I was able to get it to work:
https://brewingcompetition.com/FINAL/index.php?section=register&go=judge

It works, but it doesn't.  It doesn't seem to save some of the information (specifically it didn't save my BJCP ID and would not allow me to select judging sessions).  A few days ago, the blurb on that section said that judge/steward sign-up would be live on May 9th.  I think they're still doing some behind the scenes setup.

Thanks! My other beer got 33.

New to the forum, new to the AHA.  Entered my first ever competition beer in San Diego (an APA, scored a 31), and I am DYING to see my scoresheets.  Anybody know when they are going out?

You should be getting yours pretty soon. I got mine a few weeks after my judging site was completed (Indy).

Got them today.  Not as many comments as I was hoping (I need educated feedback to improve!), but I didn't disagree with anything they said.

The checklist scoresheet doesn't allow for a lot of comments, local competitions are better for lots of feedback

Indeed.  The checklist is not very verbose, however, I like the checklist.  Most good judges will write in something if the checklist does not adequately list what they are tasting... but I think the check boxes give just as much of an indication of what the taster was experiencing as the hand written paragraph.  I also like that it creates a more consistent feedback method... making sure all the same aspects of the beer are analyzed every time.

I think the only thing that is missing in some cases, (in the check sheet) is a good means of communicating how a beer misses the style.  (I am thinking specifically about sour beers styles and other non-mainstream styles.   I had a couple sour beers that were good (very drinkable was the comment)... but missed the mark on style a bit, and (fortunately) the judges were kind enough to put three or four words in to state how it missed.  That is perfect for figuring out how to brew the next one!

I think I actually like the checklist scoresheet better than the regular scoresheet.
Be excellent to each other
